There are many reasons why children internalise their distress rather than act out. They can become invisible to those working with them – thought to be quiet, shy or well behaved children – when actually, they are in pain.
This workshop will explore why some children are unable to show their feelings in a way that helps them access help and support. You will learn how to recognise, support and communicate effectively with these children when they need you most.
- Trauma, attachment, childhood maltreatment, and how children internalise their distress.
- Relationship-building and communication skills.
- Using creative tools and techniques to engage children and young people.
